UC Blue Ash College

Placement Testing

As part of the UC Blue Ash response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all on-campus testing is temporarily unavailable. Tests will be online only until further notice.

Placement tests in English and Math are required for students who do not have college-ready ACT/SAT scores or official transcripts with qualifying college credit. The Reading Placement Test is required only for CPAS students who did not submit an ACT or SAT score. Placement tests will assist advisors in placing you in the correct classes. You are strongly encouraged to take all your placement tests at the earliest session available to you.
